Mike Metcalfe, from Newby Wiske near Northallerton, is attempting to cycle up Chimney Bank, known as The Chainbreaker in cycling circles, 51 times over Saturday and Sunday 23 – 24 July! The distance he hopes to complete is the equivalent of cycling 8,849 metres up Mount Everest and this lung busting effort is in aid of The Alzheimers Society and the Rosedale Care Home in Catterick.
Mike finished his heroic attempt shortly before noon on Sunday. Several thousands of pounds have been raised already from spectators and drivers on the Bank over the weekend and much more is expected when pledges are finally counted in a few days time.
Mike and his team wish to thanks all in the dale who helped and supported this wonderful effort.
